Aglaonema Maria – Black Beauty
A wonderful ‘no-fuss’ option for your Aglaonema house plant collection. Glossy, dark green leaves are strikingly marbled with silvery green chevrons.Chinese Evergreen Maria has a retro-chic quality having been an interior design staple since the 1970’s. It will tolerate more shade and cooler temperatures than other varieties, making it a useful, decorative addition across homes and offices.
Light: Aglaonema will thrive in low to bright light levels. The lighter the leaf colour the higher the required light levels. Plain, dark green varieties will thrive in near shade, whereas the lighter, variegated types need well lit, bright conditions. Avoid direct sunlight as this will scorch the leaves.
Water: Keep the soil moist at all times, do not allow it to dry out. Do not overwater as this may encourage root rot. Moderation is the key.
Temperature: Normal room temperature 18-24°C, however avoid cold draughts.
Humidity: Chinese Evergreens can tolerate less humidity than some other plants, yet it will still appreciate your efforts to improve surrounding humidity levels, either via regular misting or using a pebble tray.
Feed: Slow release fertiliser once a month during the growing season.
Air Purifying: Cleans and improves air quality by filtering toxins from the surrounding environment.
